MORE ROD MCKUEN*STANYAN STREET AND OTHER SORROWS*COMFORT


Here is another poem by Rod McKuen for you....he is just sooooooo romantic. I love it!!
If we could do it all again...motor bike through roman cities in the rain....
watch the cats chase lizards in the forum
and drink bad wine from mouth to mouth....
I probably would try to love you harder than I did
I probably would smile a smile much better than the ones you knew
for I was just rehearsing then
imagining what easily might happen
in years to come
it is not just you I love
(or even roman rain)
or all the times you rattled on my window
after twelve o'clock.

I love the smell of rooms_
where you have been
the foreign touch of things I never knew
until you came along.

I even love your enemies
because they drive you into my arms
for comfort.

He is truly taken with her and captures with his pen all the feelings
flowing through his mind and heart. Just soooo WONDERFUL don't you think?
Love surely conquers all.
